Neutral and Chic Living Room
The home is a 1950s rancher, and Sullivan has made the floor plan open and airy to maximize the space. The living room is the heart of this home. A perfect space for the family to enjoy time together, entertain or just enjoy some time around the TV. Twin sofas are filled to the brim with a collection of pillows in soft yellow and gray hues. The rest of the space is kept neutral with white walls and two chic table lamps that flank one of the sofas. A vintage credenza in white adds a dose of Hollywood glam to the interior.Continue to 2 of 9 below.

Living Room and Dining Area
From the living room, there's a view into the home's dining area. With two growing boys, it's clear that Sullivan and her husband wanted the space to feel family-friendly so that the children could enjoy it as well. The room has been designed with architecture in mind. Details have been added to the space to highlight the dining area's high ceiling. Crown molding brings attention to the room's height. Long floral drapes also enhance the height of the room. And a stunning crystal and linen pendant adds a lovely finishing touch to the open and airy dining area.Continue to 3 of 9 below.

On the wall, black and white photographs add an artistic touch. The grid of images is a great way to share family photos.

About This Term: Primary Bedroom
Many real estate associations, including the National Association of Home Builders, have classified the term "Master Bedroom" as discriminatory. "Primary Bedroom" is the name now widely used among the real estate community and better reflects the purpose of the room.
